Little Miss Muffet & Simply B Stamps Tea Party Release Day 2 - My Tutorial

Hi again peeps :) WARNING... this is a photo heavy post!

Today is day 2 of the new Tea Party Release over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and Simply B Stamps, and like yesterday we have lots going on! Pop by the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog for all the yummy details!
As for me, today I have a little tutorial to share with you, showing how to make an easy DIY border for your cards or scrapbook pages. I did this using mini cupcake stamps, but you could also do it on your PC using some of the fab new Little Miss Muffet Digital Stamps like the yummy cake ones! Here goes:
Firstly, these are the materials I used (if you do your border on the PC you won't need the stamps and ink, just the digital stamps, a photo editing programme or something like Word, and a printer): 
Stamp out (or arrange on the PC) the cakes in the order you want them to appear:
Make sure that you have enough cakes to go across the size of your card base (or scrapbook page):
Using your chosen colouring materials (I've used Letraset Flexmarkers), colour in the cakes to match your card colours:
These are the Flexmarker colours I've used for my border:
Once you've finished colouring, carefully cut around your cake border:
Finally, attach the border to your card or scrapbook page using foam pads or silicone glue to give it a little dimension! And that's it! Here's my finished card:
Thanks so much for sticking with me, now pop by the Little Miss Muffet Blog or Simply B Stamps Blog to see the other tutorials and all the details of the fab prizes up for grabs! I hope this was useful for some of you :)
